The first step to take is to go to 99Pledges, our fundraising platform, and activate your child's fundraising page.
Once that's done, you can share the link to your child's fundraising page with friends and family.
Meet members of our community and enjoy the meaningful books they have chosen to share with our young readers.

All reading time, whether independent or being read to or watching read-aloud books counts!
Top readers will be rewarded!
The top reader and top fundraiser from each of our 18 elementary schools will be invited to a special virtual reception in mid-February with local author Khalid White.
Each student will receive a signed copy of one of Dr. White's wonderful books!
This is what Reading Together looks like! All 18 of our elementary schools, representing over 8,000 students, take part in our Readathon every year. As an event sponsor, you will create goodwill with thousands of people in the San Mateo and Foster City communities! You will receive marketing exposure via our website promotions and other marketing efforts based on your level of giving.
